I remember someone posted a tip on how to dismiss a notification banner on top. Can't find the thread anywhere. Usually the banner sticks for 7 seconds then goes away. There have been quite a few instances when I'm about to tap on an icon or a button on top while the very notification banner appears, thus making it very annoying even for some mere 7 seconds. So far, I've tried sliding across the banner all the way up. But instead of getting rid of it, the gesture registers as a tap and takes me straight to the corresponding app. What else could I possibly do to dismiss the damn thing? Thank you in advance.
